    Had bleeding yesterday, went in and the doctor wasnt too concerned as I had no pain or cramping. Still bleeding this morning so I went into the ER and my HCG level had dropped from 611 to 300. Not looking good.. Really upset right now.. Was really hoping things would be different this time. They did an u/s, no sign of anything in my uterus or tubes.

    I dont know what's going on. I havent had any blood actually even come out of me, its only when I wipe. No pain at all and no blood whatsoever since I left the hospital yesterday. I am so confused.. You know after I got my LMP, I had ALOT of cramping on both sides of my ovaries so I am starting to wonder if by chance I hyper ovulated and got pregnant with twins and this is a case of a vanishing twin. Apparently 1 in 10 pregnancies are twins but alot of the time people wont even know it because one will disappear in the early first trimester. Trying to stay calm and see what the doc wants to do.

    First, I'm so sorry you are having troubles. I was told at my last mc that they can't see anything on ultrasound until your hcg levels are over 1000. The fact that your hcg level is dropping is more telling than anything that ultrasound could tell you at this point. I wish you the best.

    I know. I have pretty much come to terms with the only chance I really have was if this was a vanishing twin. Im keeping my fingers crossed...

    Hi Hope how are you? I dont know if you remember me from last year when you went through your ectopic I was around then..I had lost sight of you and was happy to find your thread in the last few days but am now saddened by these more recent developments..I am so sorry that you find yourself at this crossroads again..I am also hoping with you and for you that this might just be a situation that will turn out positively.
    Did your Dr. tell you when he would be checking on you again? Maybe a repeat visit at the ER would offer some peace of mind since they could run another Beta on you and let you know whats going on..again, I hope it all works out..please keep me posted and take care.

    Went for the draw. Tried to get the results but doc is out and apparently noone can read a computer to give me the results. Did go buy a 88 cent test again and just did it and it showed up positive right away. More so than the one I took yesterday morning so I am hoping these are all good signs.

    I had bleeding in my first trimester like you just when I wiped and then one day it gushed out and i was so upset i thought i too had mc'ed but I had a blood pocket on my placenta that was leaking dr said it was normal and it would resolve itself and i had a healthy baby boy a month ago. Hope that encourages you.
